The Juicebox Mafia, Explained

Noah Pollak tossed out this term to describe Hamas' apologists. Like LadyHumps or London Bridge, I didn't know exactly what it meant, but I knew it meant something, and I liked it.

It occurred to me he might be using it in the way that it's used here -- "Get me a juicebox," from that Will Ferrel movie whose title escapes me -- implying that the moment Hamas demands that Klein, Yglesias, et al. fetch them a juicebox, they go and fetch them a frickin' juicebox.

Here's that clip. Mike Ditka here is actually playing Mike Ditka, whose doing Ferrel a favor by acting as his assistant coach.

I still think that's what it means. But My Pet Jawa thinks it has something to do with this Hamas supporter's placard, vowing, oddly enough, "Death to all Juice."

It occurs to me that I could resolve this rather easily by sending this guy an email, but, you know, I'm a blogger. I don't do reportage. I speculate. Even when actually getting the facts would take five minutes.

Okay, I will email him and find out. Just this once, and never again.

But it's worth the speculation just to note that in addition to dancing, homosexuality, rock music and the clitoris, the would-be global caliphate has also declared war on juice.

Not that it affects me. Atkins and all. But I don't want to live in a world where I can't drink a nice cool glass of Cran-Grape.

Thanks to either Duane or his wife (one of those joint email accounts). I would say his wife's name, but then I'd probably be outing them as a couple.

PS: This is a constant thing I have to consider -- how do I hat-tip people? By their real name?

If you send a tip, maybe tell me how you want to be referred to on the blog, if at all.

Oh-- and if you have a blog, please include it in the sig so I can h/t the blog! So many people have blogs now, but don't mention them in their emails.

More Obvious: He may just mean they are young and callow and filled with equal measures of youthful overconfidence and SunnyD.
